September 2013 Update and News

In 2007, the idea for an eco-friendly clothing line was first born, while I was still pregnant with my daughter. More than 3 and a half years since Golden Curly Tail first launched, the website http://www.goldencurlytail.com will close down between September – December to transition and evolve into a better website.  The journey from birth of a business to where we are now, has been full of joy, challenges and many lessons learned. Golden Curly Tail will merely be transitioning into something more evolved and better.

The LIMITED EDITION Golden Curly Tail onesies and toddlers tees will be available for sale on again on http://www.goldencurlytail.com very soon. Please check back with us by the end of September for more information.

End of Dragon Year Clearing!

We’re super excited about 2013 as we prepare to enter the Year of the Snake on February 10, 2013!

As we close out the Year of the Dragon,  we have been doing lots of cleaning, purging, giving away stuff that is no longer useful or brings joy to us and keeping only things that serve a purpose, bring beauty and joy to our lives. We have also been reminded of the blessings we received this year and carry the blessings with us into the Year of the Snake.

chinese-dragon-red

The Chinese dragon is a symbol of wisdom, power, and luck in Chinese culture. Dragons have long been a symbol in Chinese folklore and art. Temples and shrines have been built to honor them.

Through the symbol of the dragon, many Chinese see divine attributes which they aspire to themselves. In fact, the Chinese are sometimes referred to as “descendents of the dragon.” The dragon is held in reverence and respect in Chinese culture. Chinese dragons control the rain, rivers, lakes, and sea. They can ward off wandering evil spirits, protect the innocent, and bestow safety unto all. They are called lung or long in the Chinese language. They fly in the sky among clouds. Most pictures of Chinese dragons show them playing with a flaming pearl. Legend has it that the pearl gives them their power and allows them to ascend into heaven.

As we said, we are super excited about the upcoming year! Look out for a upcoming news, events and specials from Golden Curly Tail!

Stop the altering the DNA of our food, plants & animals! Yes on 37!

Right now a major battle for the future of our food and our democracy is playing out in California. At this very moment, everyday Californians are fighting to help pass Prop 37 to label genetically engineered foods. In the past 18 months, a powerful grassroots movement of mothers, grandmothers, farmers, activists and small companies have stood up to the most powerful multinational pesticide and biotech companies on the planet.

Created by artist Favianna Rodriguez to support this important fight, particulary as it affects communities of color.

Stop the Consolidation of our Food System! Demand the labeling of GMO Products!

Please share.

 

Our Families have a Right to Know – Yes on Prop. 37
