It is Made Vibrant's sole mission to help you experience authentic growth:

Welcome to Made Vibrant


Hey, I'm Caroline, and my passion is helping people design lives that are deeply aligned with who they are.

When a string of advertising jobs early in my career left me creatively stifled and stressed beyond measure, I made it my mission to stop living the life I thought I should and start creating the one that left me feeling like the best, brightest version of myself. That decision led me to start my own business as a self-made designer & hand-letterer, which then evolved into the soulful, creative community here today. I'm so glad you found us!

E-Courses | E-Guides | Mini-guides & Worksheets


Listen, you've got the goods. I KNOW you do. It's just that maybe a little nudge from a friend wouldn't hurt, ya know? With every resource I create - each course, each guide, each worksheet - I'm doing it with YOU in mind. Each is lovingly designed to lead you to your best self. 

I know you've got something special to share and the resources below are designed to help you bring it out.


Self-Made Society:

an email community for soulful creatives


I believe that everything you need to follow your passions and your dreams is already within you.

You don’t need some program or school or expert to anoint you an author or an artist or anything, really. You just need the will to learn whatever it is you need to learn and the imagination to make it work no matter what.

That's what Self-Made Society is all about.

It's an email community for soulful creatives - people just like you, striving to become the best version of themselves and to achieve self-made success on their own terms.

I love your newsletters and the hand-lettering course, and I recently bought the Connecting With Your Core ebook and am working my way through it! Everything you do is beautiful!
