I’m giving away a Kitchen Aid this Christmas

There is a bit of background to this giveaway. I was  chatting last year to one of my sweet blogging friends and we were discussing how cool it would be to give away a Kitchen Aid on our own blogs.  It seemed like something that was so far off and such an expensive thing to do. But earlier in the year I said to retro daddy ‘I’m going to do it’. I’ve had such a huge year  – not just on this blog but life in general. It’s been huge and it’s fun to do something huge just before Christmas!

And I wanted to say thank you! To everyone who pops by here, who leave a comment, who read everyday, who pop over to my facebook page, who email me, who tell their friends, who are old time readers or might be my newest fans. Thank you.  I wouldn’t have this blog and the success that I’ve had if it wasn’t for you. So why not giveaway something that I love so much. My Kitchen Aid.

There are so many things to love about a Kitchen Aid. Mine is so special because I came in the door with newborn twins to discover it all wrapped up on the kitchen counter with a big bow on it. We were living in this teeny tiny little rented townhouse with a tiny little kitchen but I gave that Kitchen Aid pride of place. Retro daddy teased me for taking such good care of it but I loved it. And I still do. Our kitchen at the old house wasn’t even finished yet but that Kitchen Aid was the first thing I put in the new kitchen. Didn’t matter that there was no electricity in the room yet!

And there is a shiny red Kitchen Aid sitting in my house all ready to go to your house. I bought it myself and it comes with an extra beater blande (fancy! I dont have one but it scrapes the bowl as it beats!) and a Kitchen Aid cookbook too. And if the number of entries just goes crazy then I’m giving away a second Kitchen Aid.  Yes. A second one will be up for grabs if the entries go crazy so that you still have a good chance of winning. You can thank retro daddy for that  because he thought I was giving away two. How generous of him.

The fine print! You must be an Australian resident, 18 or over, you may only enter once, you must enter using the form below and you must have a valid email address entered. You can read the full terms for this giveaway here. This is a random draw which will be conducted on Monday 17th December after 5pm. NSW Permit Number LTPS/12/10896. Oh and your entry won’t come up as a comment, you’ll get a message thanking you! If you want to leave a comment just do that below but fill in the form to enter. I’m trying something new and easier for picking a winner.

  33. You are so amazing Corrie, that’s the best giveaway ever! Such a lovely, generous gesture from you and Retro Daddy :)
    I’ve been reading your blog for about two years now and I don’t always comment but I read it every day. It’s part of my morning routine, haha. I love your blog, you’re such an amazing mumma, raising your 5 little ones and getting through every day chaos with no dishwasher (!!!). For that alone, you deserve an award. I don’t have a dishwasher either but I only have two little ones and it still takes me so much time! Keeping my fingers crossed for you that you get a brand-new, fully-equipped kitchen soon :)

  34. Thank you for such a generous giveaway Retro Mummy.

  50. Thank you so much for the chance to win something so wonderful!!

  51. Oh noooo – for some reason it won’t let me enter…It comes up with an error message saying it is for one entry only – but I promise I haven’t already entered!!

  52. Oh my goodness! I came for the Kitchen Aid, but I’m staying for the awesome blog! :)

  53. Just echoing everyone elses comments about how generous you guys are for giving a kitchen aid away. You just blew my mind.

  54. What a lovely thing to do Corrie. Thank you for the love and honesty that you bring to your blog – it really makes my day to read your words.

  55. I think everyone will be happy win or not because we have all witnessed the spirit of giving first hand. I don’t just mean the kitchen aid but the sharing of your daily life with all. Who would have thought googling a thermomix recipe a few weeks ago would have meant finding you and such a wonderful blog. Big hugs to the Retro Family.

  56. I kind of felt bad entering as it’s been so long since I’ve left an actual comment, though I do read regularly, then I thought, IT’S A KITCHENAID !!! so I entered 😀 You are so generous Corrie, I have wanted a kitchenaid for so long, it would be amazing to be the winner!

  87. Thank you for a chance at owning one!

  88. How wonderfully generous! I’ve always wanted one of these (but can’t quite justify it).

  89. My ultimate kitchen fantasy is a Kitchen Aid in the red sheen,
    I am obssessed with the idea of owning this wonderful machine.

  90. I have a few reasons for wanting one of these babies…. 1. I am obsessed with baking, and I have blown out two little hand held mixers this year. 2. I love to entertain and this machine will make my work so much easier. 3. It will start me on a whole new journey of food exploration. 4. Its been on my Christmas wish list for four years, however having four children thier needs come before mine.. and 5. Becasue this beauty is sleek, sexy and strong :) Just what a woman needs in her kitchen :)

  91. Wow! Jolly decent of you and the Mr.!

    Congratulations on all you’ve achieved this year! I had my second child about a month after Emerson was born and have found looking after just two children tricky enough – I’m in complete awe of how you undertake life with 5 children!

    I wish you and the fam peace and fun over the holiday season!

  92. Wonderful giveaway.

  93. I know I can’t enter from New Zealand but just wanted to say what a cute story and great giveaway, your blog has become a must-read for me this year! Merry Christmas

  94. Tash Edwards says:

    wow Thank you so much Corrie, you are so wonderfully generous. How beautiful of you xx

  95. Hi Corrie, I always remember the story of you coming home with twins to your new kitchenaid! As I didn’t get one when I had my twins, I’ll enter your giveaway instead! Wishing you and your family a peaceful, relaxing and joyous Christmas!

  96. I can’t believe your giving away 1 let alone possibly 2 Kitchen Aids. It has been on my deeply desired wish list for years and I am holding out for a real one. Hubby offered to get me a cheeper stand mixer but I know once I have one I won’t get the one I really want – A KitchenAid. So I continue to cross my fingers that my old opshop hand mixer that I got when I was at Uni will last till we can afford (or win) a KitchenAid.
    Thank you and Mr very much for having such an amazing give away.

  97. Nicola Healey says:

    Thank you for the chance to enter this competition, very generous and thoughtful of you both. I have often looked at this KitchenAid and hoped that hubby would see the want in my eyes.. but nope it has not worked as yet.. Necessity to me is just some thing that is wanted and not needed in his mind.. tens drills on the other hand.. !!
    thank you again and all the best to every one.
    Have a great holiday to all of you and your families x

  98. How terribly exciting!! Thank you for the opportunity and for your generosity. Christmas blessings x
