Printer sharing

I have a desktop and a laptop with Win 7.

I have my printer installed on both computers and just plug it into my laptop on the occasion when I want to print off from there. I have tried to share this printer and have checked and doubled checked the method of going about this but my laptop keeps telling me that no printers were found.

Help please.
