About Me

My name is Amy Sapirstein, aka: Active Urban Mom.  I am 35, living in New York City with my loving husband and our two beautiful daughters, Blakely (3) & Keaton (6 months).  Until  the birth of our first daughter I had been a focused career women.  Now I am getting used to and loving my roles as 2nd time mommy and budding entrepreneur.   I hope to use my blog to share some of my experiences as an active mom in a big city, running my own business and the adventures I try to fit in along the way.

    Hi, Amy!

    I am headed to the Chicago casting for the TLC Woman Inventor Show next week!! I live in Southern New Jersey and wanted to get to the NYC casting, but was not ready. I am so excited I can barely stand it. I was happy to find your website and blog about your experience. Your product sounds fantastic!

    Now I too am hoping for a green ticket and, who knows, maybe we’ll meet down the road!

    Good luck and best wishes,

    Jen Cannon

    Hi, Amy! I have been so curious to see if anyone shared their experience about the casting process for this. I just googled “open casting experience for TLC Woman Inventor Show” and that’s how I found you. I have never done anything like this before – I am SO excite and feel prepared and ready to have fun with it . I am not nearly as far along in the process as you are – I found about the show by accident on June 4 and that jolted me into action. My invention has been living in my head for some time and, because staying home with my young daughters keeps me hoppin’, I would just think “oh, I’ll get to that someday”…well I hoope that someday is now!! My invention is a specialized cleaning tool…

    I have been telling all of my friends about your fabulous Mommy Mitten!! Thanks so much for the good wishes and I will let you know how it goes on Thursday.

    OH – were there hundreds and hundreds of folks there? Just curious about how early I’m going to show up on Thursday morning :).

    Thanks for writing back…

    Hoping for my “green ticket”,

    Jen Cannon p.s. I’m also on FB if you want to send a message that way!

      Hi Ro! Thanks for the kudos! I think your product is awesome and such a great idea! Let’s stay in touch about how things progress if you are ok with it? By the way, how did you find my blog?? Just curious :). Good luck to you. Are you on Twitter or Facebook by chance? I would love to follow/fan you. Best! Amy

    Amy, Thanks so much. I would love to stay in touch. I would love to chat with you about other topics besides the show. I just launched Carry-Her in January. Since the casting my sales have gone up slightly. I have a really good feeling about the show. I think it may be the next American Idol. I think there will be more than one season for sure. Here is my FB fan page link


    Send me yours too.

    By the way…I was #156 and #15 to get a green card. I overheard someone say the producers were only giving out 20 green cards on the 10th. Kudos to us!!

    I love the mommymitten, it is aunique idea. But when are you going to develop the daddymitten? While real men wear pink, cool men want camouflage

      Hi Michael, Thanks for your support! Great minds think alike you know….I do plan to offer Mommy Mitten in more color options down the road with Camo being one of them. I guess this means you are cool??
