Geek Fire Gifts Burn brightly.


So, what exactly is going on here, anyway?

John here, and I think it is about time I actually post what this site is about.

I have tried my hand at several different kinds of arts and crafts, usually for birthday or holiday gifts, or sometimes just as a thank you. I think that it is fair to say that some gifts have gone over better than others. What struck me, though, was one year I decided to make something for each of my local friends and family, and this time they may have actually genuinely liked it.

I had been in the grocery store where I saw a book on candle-making. It was in the bargain bin, languishing amongst seasonal items and half open boxes. I picked it up, saw that it was less than ten dollars, tossed it in my shopping basket and moved on.

I got home, and immediately began reading through the book. There were a lot of ideas, and it was for some type of candle that I had not seen before. Intrigued, I began to experiment. This is the result of those experiments. From humble beginnings in a grocery store basket, this idea is now on a humble web site on the internet.

For the past few months, I have been strenuously working, trying new ideas, attempting to perfect old ones, and thankfully having a good time with it. And I am about ready to unveil my little project. This has been a labor of love, and a wonderful experience for me. Are the results terribly grand? Well, I will let the cold words of the anonymous internet answer that one, but I have enjoyed myself immensely.

Through this site and this blog, I will be posting pictures of some of what I have made over the last few months. This small series of posts will culminate in me holding a booth in this year's New York Comic-Con / New York Anime Festival's Artist Alley. Naturally, I will not be unveiling my favorite creations until then, but I hope that you like what you see. If you do, or if you don't, please tell me. I am eager to hear from you.

I will start off with a rather simple design that I enjoy.

Thank you all very much for reading, and please check back soon to see what is new!

Welcome to We are happy to meet you.

My name is John, and I am the creator of Geek Fire Gifts and all that you will find here.

At the moment however, "all that you will find here" is not much, I am afraid. All this is going to change. Slowly at first, but hopefully with increasing speed, this site will be filled with content.

And what sort of content? Well, that yet remains to be seen.

Check back here and you will find out. I will be posting teasers, information, and news about the Geek Fire Gifts project.

I hate to hold you in suspense, but all will be made clear.
