I absolutely love my Purple Cow Laminator! After just a day of using it I am hooked. My sister had used one at a friends home and told me how many adorable things she creates and just her stories alone made me want one. When it arrived it was in perfect condition and is so user friendly. We are working on our Christmas gifts for family and the ideas just never stop. I recently discovered the Purple Cow blog and it looks like I am not the only one hooked on this little machine! In these financial times I was unsure of spending money on such a thing but I am happy every time I turn it on. You can't put a price on happiness! Use it and you'll be happy too!
