I was experimenting with a French press and found a method to create stable foam to make 3D art on top of my cups," says Daphne. It takes around 10 to 20 minutes to create each piece of art and she now uses a milk frother from Nespresso to create the foam. Scroll down to see the results," said Daphne.

Rich East was tired of slogging away at a job he wasn't passionate about, so he decided to sell off all of his belongings and travel with Willow, his rescue cat, around Australia in a campervan. "In February 2017 we finally made it to South Australia, marking Willow's official completion of visiting all 6 states and 2 territories of Australia! This is what is known in Aussie adventure cat slang as a Purrfect Eight. We've achieved so much together and seen some amazing places. I can't imagine being on this trip without her by my side. We've sailed the Great Barrier Reef, camped up mountains and travelled thousands of kilometers of gravel roads from Bourketown in Queensland, all the way up to Northern Territory," said Rich.

Yard Built XSR700

Winston Yeh's Rough Crafts is back at it again, and his latest project is perfect for cruising the streets of Gotham. Called the "Yard Built XSR700", it's based on the XSR700 and features an X2E fully adjustable remote control digital suspension, making it adjustable on the fly for tarmac riding or muddy terrains. He then designed a set of triple clamps that can run a set of YZF-R1 forks along with an R1 axle, brakes and wheels designed for the R1 front end. "The XSR was an amazing base to start with. I love the tubular frame of the 700, and the power to weight ratio is perfect for a motorcycle. With the newly designed shorter frame and detachable rear frame loop you really don't need to cut the frame to make a proper custom shape," said Winston.
