We never seem to have enough boxes, baskets, or storage containers to keep everything organized. But store-bought baskets and organizing things can be expensive, even when they’re on sale.  Let the Pretty Committee show you how to create your own out of an ordinary cardboard box and jute rope!  Participants need to bring in a suitable cardboard box and some fabric to wrap around the top.

It looks like the perfect murder: an unidentifiable victim—a young woman found in a low-rent Manhattan hotel, face down in a bathtub of acid, teeth removed, fingerprints and face gone, and a murder scene devoid of fingerprints, DNA, or any other identifiers. The homicide detective in charge, Ben Bradley, is a long time friend of Pilgrim, a retired CIA operative who has penned a textbook on criminal investigations that the murderer has apparently read.
