Thank you so much! It wasn't until I decided to make the commitment to track down my spreads and organize them that I realized that there were so many!

And now here is a new one!

A Child Is Born Spread (6)

Knocking on your door spread


Glass Owl, I'm a bit puzzled to be honest... Regarding my Knocking On Your Door Spread which I created and posted here: http://www.tarotforum.net/showthread...g+on+your+door in 2009... We are either telepats or... worse. It was alos requested for the last year's Tarot Calendar...

As you see from my spread index I have been inspired by various spread requests to come up with my own spreads including my Pulling The Covers Over My Head spread. In addition, I always do my best to mention my source(s) of inspiration, help, and if my spread is a modification of someone else's work I state that.

When Finaflight asked for spread assistance in this thread I was inspired that very day to write my Knocking On Your Door Spread. I remember playing The Men At Work's song "Who Can It Be Now?" several times as I wrote that spread and my husband, who was playing a video game at the time, complaining and asking why I kept replaying it.

It didn't occur to me to search for a spread link to help Finaflight because frankly it seemed like such a specific and unusual topic that I didn't think that anything of that nature would be out there.

I had no idea that your spread existed and if I had I would have happily provided finaflight with a link to it. If you look through my post history you will see the countless times that I have provided others with links for spreads (not my own) that may be helpful to them given the question(s) they are asking.

I am not puzzled in the least by the similarities in our spreads. We both tackled a very specific topic and really there are only so many questions and side points that one can address with such a narrow focus.

I have to admit that the "or...worse" part of your statement stings and I hope that I have misunderstood your intentions. There are countless books, movies, songs, and other creative works out there that have passing similarities but that doesn't mean that their creators didn't come up with the ideas on their own

I'm happy to hear the good news and that your spread has been so well received. It is something you should be proud of and hopefully it will encourage you to create and share more spreads in the future.

I really enjoy the creative twists of your spreads. A small book that could be carried with some decks would be great. I bought a book of spreads and it is ENORMOUS in size, and it just does not need to be.
Are you planning a book? I hope so.
Thanks again...

You both might have a similar title for your spreads, but from looking at them they seem very different.

Glass Owl, if you keep this up, you're going to have to put them all together for a book!
