Well folks, after talking about it for months and months, the new Inspired by Charm is here! I can’t tell you how excited I am to share it with all of you. Isn’t it gorgeous!?

The fabulous Bethany of B*Spoke Studio is the genius behind the look and feel of the site. Josh Leuze is the technical guru who made it all work.I seriously could not be happier. I will be forever grateful for their expertise.

Make yourself comfortable and feel free to poke around. I did make the switch from Blogger to WordPress, so there is going to be some “weirdness” until I have a chance go through all 800+ posts to make sure things are formatted and working correctly. As I do this, you’ll notice the Recipe and Design pages slowly start to fill. So exciting!

All the recipe-related posts will now have an actual (printable) recipe built in to the end of the post. How great is that!? I’m also going to create House Tour posts so you can see my house in one easy location. I know that some of you have been asking for that.


As you are clicking around, you may also notice that I have a new site as well. With the new blog, I launched michaelwurmjr.com. This is just a little space where you can learn a bit more about me and my work.

So take some time, explore, and have fun!


Even though I’m running on three hours of sleep after a restless night struggling with Google, servers, and things I never want to deal with again, I’m going to keep plugging away.

To me. it was all worth it. The new IBC is fierce!

I can’t wait to hear hat do you think? Let me know in the comments.

      Question: Are you using a plug-in for the thumbnails on your Recipes and Designs pages? Or maybe your theme supports a portfolio settings for pages?? I have been wanting to do the same thing but it never looks right. Thanks!

      • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

        To be honest, I’m not really sure. I had a designer and developer put it all together for me. I’m just pleased it all works!

        xo Michael

    Michael!!! It is so beautiful. Doing a redesign is a little like giving birth. It is a process. But your final result is so fresh and fun and gorgeous. Congratulations!
