What is CS?
CS is a tragic childhood disease that causes premature aging and a shortened lifespan.
The butterfly is the symbol for children who have lost their lives early to CS, so many of my items feature this symbol.
Please consider purchasing an item in our shop or donating cards/items to the shop. You will be credited in the item description.
Thank you so much,
Scarlett Clay
