I don't know what happened. However, I'm curious what the purpose or purposes of your site(s) will be. Beauty, of course is in the eye of the beholder. A fancy, dancy theme may not be suitable for marketing, while a site geared to marketing probably will not try to dazzle the visitor with extensive graphics.
I use WordPress exclusively, and may have some suggestions. Of course, there are some who post on this board who detest WordPress, but I ignore all that based on my own experience.
