About
Hello there! I'm Tomopop's friendly neighborhood Reviews Editor, Rio! If I'm not here at Tomopop, you can usually find me creating all kinds of artsy fartsy things. I love to sew, and I run my own craft store, as well as quilting, drawing, painting, and I have even done custom toys of my own. I'm usually easy to get ahold of if I haven't been buried under my ever growing collection of toys.
