Inspired & Thankful

Hi! I'm Jual, owner of The lullaby lofT! My little boutique has been handcrafted & inspired by the little peanuts in our family. Each PDF tutorial has been thoughtfully made so you may create that handcrafted gift for the little loved one(s) in your life. I have a degree in Visual Arts Education: K-12, and believe all that teaching has equipped me with confidence to design & teach others how to create little works of love. My husband, with our five children, live in a cozy cottage style house in the heart of the city.

In 2013, I opened my little shop in hopes of having a little extra spending money for Christmas presents. Little did I know how many of you fellow craftsman enjoy a good photo tutorial pattern! Within 5 months of opening, my husband and I were amazed and blessed to have received so many sales that we were able to pay off the rest of our college debt! Debt free is a wonderful feeling.

Fast forward to 2020, a thankful heart still fills my days...
(I wasn't planning on sharing this below when I wrote this memorial to our son that we miscarried in Jan 2020, but feel like it seems appropriate in light of what is hitting the globe with Covid-19.)

Beginning 2020 with a family portrait in a cemetery may not be the ideal setting for some, but for me I wouldn’t have it any other way. You see, I have two sons buried in this cemetery. Nehemiah James (April 24, 2015) and Philip Kaden (January 10, 2020).

Miscarriage is a word so quietly spoken. Death and suffering are never cups any of us voluntarily choose. Yet, here I am. In a valley of death I thought I left back in 2015. Two baby boys that I got to deliver & hold. 10 fingers and 10 toes. Both died around 14 weeks gestation, beautifully formed. (Nehemiah I learned at a 15 week appointment and Philip at my 18 week appointment.)

What do I do when I find myself in the valley of the shadow of death? I choose Jesus. I choose His words. For He is a good God and He has good plans for me. …and though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me. (Psalm 23:4)

I choose JOY… because His mercies are new every morning. (Lam 3:23)
I choose JOY… because I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of living. (Ps 27:13)
I choose JOY… because I know that my Redeemer lives. (Job 19:25)
I choose JOY… because He loves the sound of my voice. (Songs 2:14)
I choose JOY… because the lines have fallen to me in pleasant places. (Ps 16:6)
I choose JOY… because He blessed me with two sons, that I will forever be their Mom.(Ps 127:3)
I choose JOY… because this is not the end of the story for my sons. (1 Thess. 4:14)
I choose JOY… because one day Jesus will come and split the sky. (1 Thess. 4:16)
I choose JOY… because Death is swallowed up in victory. (1 Cor. 15:54)

So, on an unusually warm Wednesday morning in January 2020, our family made the drive once again with balloons, shovels, and a blue tarp to bury Philip with his brother Nehemiah. On this day we chose JOY, for He is a faithful God. He is a good Father to the Hopkins family and I will stake my claim in the city whose builder and maker is God. (Hebrews 11: 10)

In the midst of sorrow, please rejoice with us for a life is still a life, regardless of the length. Though their season was cut short, I am thankful that I am privileged to be called their Mom. That Jesus saw it fit, to take my weak ‘yes’ to children. Partnering with Him in creating human beings that get to live forever with Him, for His glory, because He alone is worthy.

For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 4:14)

My son’s stories are not finished and neither is mine. Joy is on the horizon and I will see my sons again.

Additional policies and FAQs
All patterns & photographs created by The Lullaby Loft are copyrighted. Our advent calendars are registered copyrighted as well. So please respect our creativity and do not pass along your purchased pattern.

If you are wanting to sell your finished product please contact us first. We can sell you a limited production license so you may sell your finished work locally! You will have to link your for sale item to: www.thelullabyloft.etsy.com

This I hope is a given where applicable, but any and all precut kits/patterns/products sold from The Lullaby Loft containing small objects have the potential as a choking hazard to children under 3 years of age. ie. Calendar ornaments, plushies, ziplock bags, etc... Please be advised that adult supervision is advised if a child under 3 has access to small pieces from our shop. I know my 16 month old can get very creative with what he sticks in his mouth. ;-)

Thank you, and happy crafting!
