About Me


I'm Jennifer Sanderson, screen printin', Pinterest-lovin', crazy crafter behind Pigskins & Pigtails.

I am a mama to 2 girls with a supportive husband who puts up with our creative mess. Most of the time you can find me in my craft room – crafting for the next holiday, screen printing t-shirts, or planning the girls' birthday parties.

Pigskins & Pigtails started in 2010 as a space to share my creative projects and party photos with friends and family.  When Pinterest came along, my blog grew like I never could have imagined. I am so thankful to all of the Pinners and social media followers who have inspired me to grow this blog from my first Elmo-themed party post to a resource for DIY screen printing.

What's the name all about? When I started my blogging journey, I was a football coach's wife (pigskins) who was toting 2 little girls in pigtails, all decked out in our Friday Night Lights attire, to high school football games all over Central Texas.  We are still football fanatics, cheering on our Texas Longhorns and supporting our Gatesville Hornets, but my husband traded in his whistle to become a high school principal and the girls are outgrowing the pigtails stage.
